Sounds like a problem with your PSE pump , getting damp/wet , do a search , there should be plenty of info !
I think you'll find if you pull the fuse you'll stop other stuff , try disconnecting just the siren until you get it sorted ?
I also remember some comments on the siren having a seperate battery , try s search on that just in case ??

With tongue firmly planted in cheek--"It sounds like you picked up some goblins on Halloween". Perhaps an exorcism is in order?

I'm having the same issue too. But I don't think it's the PSE in mine. I've always had a problem with the alarm randomly going off. Sometimes it only happens once, sometimes it will happen every 10 minutes from 1am until 4am...

I'm pretty sure it's not the PSE in mine because I had to have that replaced after Sandy; water got all up into the rear bumper, exhaust, and trunk, but the slope of my driveway kept it JUST out of the engine bay and is the only thing that saved it from being totaled out. And when I brought it in for repairs after all the repainting that had to be done they said that was the only part that needed replacing.

I had the problem before that though, and honestly it's only happened once since the hurricane; yesterday in fact. But I think that's because I leave the car unlocked at all times when home. I did start locking it again recently to get me back in the habit because I'm going to put in a new headunit so I can get some bluetooth audio.

So if it's not PSE what else might it be? My mechanic said it's not worth having him tear through it unless I want to spend a couple grand on finding the problem on a car that's only worth a couple grand...

I have a 2001 SLK230. Thanks to this forum I was able to solve mystery malfunctions. Found the PSE, open and indeed had very light corrosion on both sides. With a toothbrush I gently brushed it away. Dust spray any reside. Used CRC contact cleaner to finish cleaning and then CRC Lubricant that I bought at Home Depot. Now all is working fine: Locks don't engage and disengage without reason, dome light is working now at it should when you open the door or when you turn the alarm off. Trunk light works now. Door lock control in center console works. Alarm does not go off for no reason anymore. THANKS SLK FORUM!!!! you have a lot of knowledge here!!!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

First please update your location in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ . Info in your garage does not update your profile.

Join the gang! Your 1st thread should be your introduction so we can welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
